NOEDC Championship Show 2019 Judged by Miss Sarah Dandy & Diane Dinsdale
Bitch Report

I would first like to thank everyone who entered and allowed me the opportunity to meet their lovely bitches. A good entry numerically and as the standard was high I had to split hairs in some classes.

Some were not in good coat and this affected their placings. One or two concerns. Firstly some are quite short in rib. This is not correct. Dalmatians should have a good length of rib and they should not be too short coupled. The length to height ratio is slightly longer than tall. They should not be a boxy shape like a Poodle. I am not obsessed with perfect spotting but tick spotting spoils the overall appearance of a good exhibit if it is too heavy. Few are unavoidable but heavy ticking detracts. Once you get ticking in your line it is hard to breed out.

Finally the Standard clearly states strong muscular and active. I struggled top find any muscle tone on quite a few. Temperaments were delightful.

My co judge Sarah Dandy and I happily agreed to disagree for BIS and the Referee gave the nod to the very handsome dog. We were in complete agreement on the remaining awards.
